    If you find them comfortable, find a shoe with a similar drop. I currently use both the Moab and Brooks Cascadia 14s depending on where and when I'm hiking. The moab provide better protection and...

    Can't comment on the Hayduke trail, but I do a lot of hiking in the southwest in desert like areas. You want to keep your feet as cool as possible. The temperature within a few inches of the ground...

    When I plan a trip, I plan on a conservative average daily mileage where one day may be less or more depending on the terrain. I may end up with a higher average, but my food won't run out and I...

    All I say is I sectioned hiked Maine to northern Mass from late August through mid October in 2012. Had great hiking weather until I entered NH. Was wet at least part of very day but 2 until I came...

    I have seen a few areas with mosquitoes after labor day, but those areas are short and far in between. Not something I'd worry about. Nights will be cold, especially at altitude. I'd plan on...

    I've seen the question of electronics come up every few years. It isn't a new debate, but it's become a larger part of peoples hikes for many, and more intrusive for others, as smartphones became...

    Dehydrated food like Mountain House and hand sanitizer are becoming hard to find, so there is already an impact on hikers. There are people trying to resell at a huge markeup. If the fears don't...

    What would the conditions be in New Mexico along the Gila alternate route up to Pie Town in the 2nd half of November? From what I can gather, this is a transitional period, but I don't know what...

    If you are talking about hiking from Campo To San Jacinto in August, I would ask you reconsider. The only way I'd consider hiking it then would be hiking at night for most of it. Then there is the...

    When I cook I prefer the Freezer bag method because I don't need to clean up my pot afterwards. I love hiking, but despise camp chores and want to do the bare minimum in camp. And if I'm not adding...

    Thanks. As a last minute procrastinater, that really helps. I was going to start my trip in less than 2 weeks, so the promised 2 day turnover works. Just placed my order.

    I'd like instructions on how to fill out the form. It asks for where you plan to visit and I don't know what parts of the CDT line up with the different land boundaries. Can't we just put CDT?

    Note, Railrider usually restocks their line in March. So they should have their EcoMesh pants back in stock by early April if you can wait.
    I'd call them and ask if they have a firm date yet.
